Seeing the world differently, driving creativity, taking control of your passion.

These are some of the wonderful things about photography that are cherished by both adults & kids alike!


We‘d love to help you or your kiddo pursue a skill that opens up a world of endless possibilities.

Not only is photography great for documenting life‘s adventures,

but the confidence that grows within as kids of all ages learn & create art is incredibly fulfilling to see.

Every work-shopper will also receive a custom made book filled with tons of detailed info about photography! A great tool to refer back to as they begin their photography journey.
